XD (version 19.2.22) will no longer open on my Windows 10 PC. When I click Open I get a white window that says Adobe XD in the upper left corner for about 30 seconds and then the window closes. I tried installing version 19.1.22 and that didn't work either. I have upgraded back to 19.2.22 and it is still not working.

I had to quickly code the pages by hand in Dreamweaver while XD is down. Please help. I need to finish working on some files for a deadline.

The same thing is happening to me. I just completely reinstalled my operating system after spending about 3 hours with Adobe Support trying to fix the issue, and it's still not working. I have figured out that if I don't have the creative cloud app open, it seems to work. But if the creative cloud app is open and I launch XD, I get the white screen, and then I can't access my start menu or cortana search unless I kill all of the creative cloud processes. I think this is some kind of weird issue with the creative cloud app and conflicts with XD.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear that you're facing trouble using Adobe XD. The issue with white screen crash in XD seems to be fixed in the latest version of XD. Could you please share the OS and XD version of your machine?

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hello, I am using the same issue. I have Windows 10 Pro (64 bit), and Adobe XD 22.7.12, previously tried XD 20.0.12 as well. Both are giving issues. I have done it all, from checking registry keys, to uninstall, restart reinstall, uninstall driver disable, restart reinstall, nothing seems to work.

I have the latest version of Windows 10, all of the updates. I discovered that the issue was a May 2019 update that caused my CPU to spike. There was a patch that was supposed to fix it, but it didn't work. Once I backed up all of my files and completely reinstalled Windows from scratch, it fixed the issue. Just reinstalling Windows and keeping preferences and such didn't fix it. It's because I disabled Cortana/Search and then did the May 2019 update. I noticed issues right away after an update, but I wasn't sure what month it was. But this article confirmed I'm not crazy and there was something wrong with my machine after installing a windows update, and the month seems to line up with when I started having issues. I did numerous things to try and fix it, but at the end of the day the issue kept coming back. I have lost countless hours of production time over this. Very frustrating. But I'm glad to have finally figured it out. Hope this helps. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3435362/microsoft-will-patch-windows-10-cpu-spike-bug-and-says-its-t...

I don't have both these installed. Still facing the issue. However, for me, a fresh installation cannot happen - it will take a couple of days to setup my machine as I want it, that is time I do not have on my hands.

I'm sorry, I've been working on this for months and this was the only solution I was able to find. I've set up my computer 2 times now. It's a pain in the butt but I can be more productive now that everything is working again. I hope you find another way!
